Answers to some of the most asked questions that we think you will find useful 🙌🏼I've got more questions!
What makes your mayonnaise suitable for the Keto or Paleo Diet?
When searching for an approved mayo, be sure not to just check the macros but also the ingredients of the mayonnaise itself. Rapeseed oil (Canola), sunflower oil, and sugar should be avoided. Vegetable and Seed oils are inflammatory and we believe are best avoided in the pursuit of Optimal Health and Wellness.
Hunter & Gather mayos only use 100% avocado oil and no blends of oils. They are also low in carbohydrates and sugar-free but packed with great monounsaturated fats so are perfect for a Paleo, Keto, Low Carb or Real Food Lifestyle.
How many avocados are used in each jar?
We cold-press and physically filter our avocado oil (there are no chemicals used) from the flesh of perfectly ripe avocados.
We use the oil from the following number of avocados per jar;
- 175g jars ~ 8 avocados
- 250g jars ~ 12 avocado
- 630g jars ~ 33+ avocados
Do you use free-range eggs?
Yes! They are also British and sourced from St. Ewe farms in Cornwall.
We never use powder eggs like the majority of other mayonnaise brands as they typically have undeclared flow agents in them.
What is the fatty acid profile of avocado oil?
Typically, avocado oil is made up of 76% monounsaturated fatty acids, 14% saturated fatty acids and 10% polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Does your mayonnaise have any dairy?
No - real mayonnaise should never have dairy! If there is dairy in it then it is not real mayonnaise in our opinion.
All of our mayonnaise range is free from milk, including milk powders, whey, and anything derived from milk.
How should I store Hunter & Gather mayonnaise?
Our mayonnaise is an ambient product (no need to refrigerate until it is opened).
We also recommend not storing in the fridge until you open your mayonnaise. This prevents it from getting too cold and potentially solidifying.
Once opened and in use, store as high as possible in the fridge door. Do not store low down in your fridge or at the back of your fridge (the coldest areas that can cause it to solidify).
We suggest your fridge is set no lower than 4 deg C.
Why has my mayonnaise separated / split / turned to liquid / gone hard?
Our mayonnaise is made with natural real food ingredients without any nasty preservatives or thickeners. This means the mayo can turn solid and the emulsification can break due to significant temperature fluctuations - this is very rare but can happen especially during Winter.
If this has happened, please contact our customer care team who will be happy to assist you!
How long does Hunter & Gather mayonnaise last?
Hunter & Gather mayonnaise is best used before the ‘best before end’ date that is printed on the lid.
Typically all mayonnaise bought directly from Hunter & Gather will have 6 months or more of shelf life.
